Milan Boutique Accommodation
Ah, Italy. It isn’t exactly a secret travel destination, with tens of millions of visitors each year (yes, really!). But those honeymooners and backpackers know what they’re doing—there’s a reason it’s so popular.
Actually, there are tons of reasons: food, culture, art and architecture, for starters. Italy has more World Heritage Sites than any other country on earth!
While Rome has all the famous ruins, and Venice is home to those romantic canals, we’ll let you in on a secret: Milan is the real can’t-miss city. This fashion hub and financial centre is known for its upscale lifestyle, so you’re definitely going to want boutique accommodation in Milan to really soak in those swanky vibes.
Leonardo da Vinci—maybe you’ve heard of him? He’s the creator of one of the most famous paintings in the world, “The Last Supper”, and you can see it right here in Milan at Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie. Get tickets ahead of time to ensure you get in—this painting is even more exclusive than the best boutique hotels in Milan.
If you’ve got a room with a view at Uptown Palace, you just may be able to see your next destination: The Duomo. Milan’s famous cathedral may be only the fifth-largest in the world, but it has the most statues (3400 to be exact, plus 135 gargoyles) and the best view from the roof. On clear days, you can get a “peak” all the way to the Alps!
It’s All About the Food
Milan may be home to “The Last Supper” painting, but you won’t have to worry about any meal being your last here. We’ve heard that some people book boutique Milan hotels just to experience the city’s cuisine—not that we would do that…but the food in Milan is just as rich as all those bankers who live here. It’s made with butter as the staple ingredient rather than olive oil, and meat takes centre stage over fish.
Start out with pane e salame, a dish so simple, it also doubles as a Milanese expression for, well, something that’s simple! It means “bread and salami”, and that’s just what you’ll get. Follow it up with risotto alla Milanese, which is made with saffron, one of the most expensive spices in the world by weight. Plus, it turns the risotto a golden colour, which is also appropriate for Italy’s most affluent city.
If you’ve got any room left, order up cannoncini for dessert. In fact, you’ll want to get these flaky, cream-filled pastries even if you don’t have room left—believe us, you’ll find some. Milan boutique hotels like Hotel Regina are the perfect place to fall into a food coma.
Hungry? Us, too! Better get yourself to Milan, ASAP. Check out Wotif’s great deals on Milan boutique accommodation and get going. Bonus: You’ll have plenty of euros left over for all the risotto, bread and pastries you can eat. Bring your stretchy pants!
